Considering they support the entire weight and structure of your body, your feet are quite small; but they can cause big problems. Each step you take involves a remarkably intricate network of bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This complexity, combined with the amount of weight they carry, accounts for why feet can be so prone to problems, especially as we age.
Problems such as arthritis, plantar fasciitis, bone micro-fractures, and other painful conditions, if left untreated may worsen, causing increasing amounts of pain. This pain can alter the way you do the most basic things, such as walking down the street or going up and downstairs, leading to additional problems with knees, hips, and back. Simple pain in the feet, if left unattended can have a huge impact on the quality of your life.
THERE IS GOOD NEWS!
Our physical therapists are well-qualified to treat most foot disorders and associated gait issues. We can even provide custom orthotics if they are deemed to help. Custom orthotics are molded specifically to your feet to provide the perfect and most effective fit to allow you to get back to your daily activity level without pain.
OUR CUSTOM ORTHOTIC INSERTS
After a thorough initial evaluation, foot orthotics may be an appropriate treatment. Our custom orthotics can be helpful in a number of ways:
put the foot and ankle in better alignment
help the foot better disperse stress during walking or running
cushion and support hypo-mobile (stiff or rigid) segments of the foot
stabilize the area of the foot that might be hyper-mobile (have too much mobility)
redistribute forces on the foot & ankle to alleviate pain
